    Boston officials are reportedly considering a plan which would radically re-shape schools across the city. 

    According to the Boston Globe, the plan would create a system of elementary schools that end at grade six and high schools that start at grade seven. 

    The move is intended to boost the quality of education for seventh and eighth-graders by concentrating support services in fewer schools.
